Ho! Ho! Ho! As Christmas is rapidly approaching, we are eager to feel the Christmas cheer, sing those amazing carols, and read those great Christmas stories again. Each family has its own Christmas traditions they respect every year. Don’t forget Santa’s milk and cookies and most of all, the gifts and the Christmas movies collection.
We have gathered for you some movie titles and we want to share with you our Christmas movies pack. This is an addition to the short list of Christmas movies we wrote a few days ago. This time, we counted 30 of the best Christmas movies ever made, but you can also add your favorite in case you will not find it here. Enjoy!
#1. Love Actually (2003)
This Christmas movie is great because it follows the lives of eight very different couples. Each of the couple has problems in dealing with their love lives during a frantic month before Christmas in London, England. It’s our strong opinion that this movie is all about understanding each other and forgiveness.
#2. Eight Women (2002)
This Christmas movie is all about our passion for French actresses. The story gets a little weird as a wealthy homeowner is killed during the run-up to Christmas, putting the spotlight on eight female suspects. The best part of the film is when the characters seem to understand that we are all equal, no matter our social status. You will adore this film!
#3. How the Grinch Stole the Christmas (2000)
This is a new entry in our Christmas movies list, but what would Christmas be like without someone trying to steal it? A little adrenaline rush before the Christmas dinner hasn’t hurt anybody. The film is a big budget remake of the classic cartoon about Grinch; we enjoyed and feared him when we were children.
#4. A Christmas Tale (2008)
This Christmas movie shows us the tale of a French family who gathers for Christmas, only for all of their resentment and bitterness to emerge when the mother reveals she has leukemia. Many of us have awkward family moments during Christmas time, and you will find some kind of relief to know you’re not the only ones with this kind of problems.
#5. Joyeux Noël (2005)
The Christmas movie depicts the story behind one of the famous legends of World War I, as soldiers from opposing trenches agree to a Christmas Day truce to bury their dead and play football.
#6. While You Were Sleeping (1995)
This Christmas movie depicts a more unorthodox romance as Lucy, the feminine character played by Sandra Bullock, saves the commuter she’s got a crush on, pretends to be his fiancée while he’s in a coma. Only things aren’t meant to be the way she plans and she finds herself falling in love with her pretended fiancé’s brother.
#7. Black Christmas (1974)
This isn’t exactly a Christmas movie which depicts the Holiday joy, but the first and, from what we know, the best horror Christmas movie which was ever made. What about the plot? A Christmas party at a sorority house is the perfect excuse for a serial killer to go crazy and knock himself out. If you want some Christmassy adrenaline rush, this film will offer you more than you can handle.
#8. A Christmas Carol (1984)
What would Christmas look like without Ebenezer Scrooge and his Grinch-like attitude? Charles Dickens has truly outdone himself when creating such a character. Of course, the adaptation of the novel will always be on our Christmas movies list.
#9. Home Alone (1990)
This film will always be in the Christmas movies list. It is almost a tradition to watch this film and enjoy a good laugh with the entire family. We cannot forget the expressive face of Macaulay Culkin and the way an eight year old boy proves to be smarter than two experienced burglars. Dennis the Menace is no match for Kevin McCallister.
#10. Home Alone 2 (1992)
This Christmas movie is the best from the series “Home Alone”. Kevin does it again, this time a little far from his own home, in New York, where he accidently meets the two burglars again.
#11. Arthur Christmas (2011)
What if Santa forgets about some of the gifts? What would the poor children do? This Christmas movie offers everybody an answer: Arthur, Santa’s son, will take care of everything.
#12. The Santa Clause (1994)
What would a Christmas movie list be like without mentioning Santa in the title? This film shows us how a normal human can become the jolly fellow who brings gifts to everybody.
#13. The Shop Around the Corner (1940)
This Christmas movie is yet another Christmassy love story we can enjoy with a sweet cookie and a nice hot chocolate. It’s the busiest time of the year in a gift shop in Budapest and two co-workers are very upset with each other, without even realizing they are actually pen pals and in love with each other.
#14. In Bruges (2008)
Two assassins are ordered to take leave in the titular Belgian city after Farrell’s Ray accidentally kills a child, but the wintry splendour of Bruges can’t assuage guilt. If you’re dreaming about a Christmas in Belgium, than this is indeed the film for you.
#15. Scrooge (1951)
This Christmas movie is commonly judged to be the definitive ‘straight’ adaptation of Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. The principal star, Alistair Sim, is so good in the role that he was asked to reprise in voice form for the 1971 animated version.
#16. A Christmas Story (1983)
This is an American Christmas tradition, always watched during the Holidays by the entire family. It is about a boy’s obsession to get a B.B. gun for Christmas. This is a bitter-sweet parody of having your dreams become reality.
#17. A White Christmas (1954)
This is a classic, but it will always be part of a Christmas movies list to watch. Back then, the classic red and white image of Santa was born and children began writing letters to the dear old and generous fellow. As the final line in the movie goes, “… may all your Christmases be white.”
#18. Miracle On 34th Street (1947)
Little Susan is convinced that Macy’s department store Santa, Kris Kringle, is the real Santa. The authorities aren’t so convinced, and start court proceedings to have him locked up.
#19. The Muppet Christmas Carol (1992)
This is a Christmas tradition for Muppets fans out there. Don’t miss it this year either!
#20. The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)
This Christmas movie has also become a Christmas classic about a Halloween takeover of Christmas, which is usually the first “scary”movie families watch in the run-up to 25 December.
#21. Gremlins (1984)
When you want an unusual Christmas gift, destruction may occur. The conclusion? Be careful what you wish for because you might get it and you might not like it at all.
#22. Elf (2003)
A human is being raised as one of Santa’s elfs. When he goes back to the real world, all he knows is to spread the Christmas cheer he learned back home.
#23. It’s a Wonderful Life (1946)
Frank Capra’s fable of redemption, parallel universes and small-town life has been canonized as a feel-good classic. In fact, it is a Christmas movie showing the story of a suicidal man saved by a miraculous, divine intervention.
#24. The Bishop’s Wife (1947)
This magical, reverent comedy is among the very best of all Christmas movies. The film tells us the story of a stranger who comes into town to build a new church, but falls in love with a married woman.
#25. Nothing for Christmas (2001)
A family has financial problems they need to solve. The action is very similar to the one in the classic “It’s a Wonderful Life”. Sometimes it is better to have nothing for Christmas, but your entire family and loved ones.
#26. Four Christmases (2008)
A comedy which tells the story of a couple struggling to visit all their four divorced parents, for Christmas. You can imagine the hilirious situations they end up in.
#27. The Family Stone (2005)
A conservative businesswoman accompanies her husband-to-be to his eccentric and outgoing family’s annual Christmas celebration and finds that she’s not at all accustomed to their free-spirited way of life.
#28. Christmas Vacation (1989)
A family plans for a Christmas vacation are ruined because of a series of funny events. This is also a Christmas classic to enjoy before the Christmas Eve.
#29. Jack Frost (1998)
The father dies in a terrible car accident, but comes back to his kid in the form of a snowman. This is a very emotional Christmas movie and can make you shed tears.
#30. The Pollar Express (2004)
On Christmas Eve, a doubting and timid boy boards a magical train that’s heading to the North Pole and Santa Claus’s home.
This was our extended list of Christmas movies we are always enjoying during the Holidays. Would you add something to this list? Which one is your personal favorite?
